Holy crap - I want to be an artist. I want to draw cool covers and then make that much money after I sell them. Then I want to buy a mansion and live happily ever after, just me, my wife, my daughter, our butler, our cook, our maid, our driver, and our zookeeper.
According to the article:
The price for the cover art for Amazing Spider-Man #328 sets a new record for a single piece of American comic art, topping the price for a Dark Knight splash page by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson set last year.
Hmm...I'd much rather have the Dark Knight piece myself.
